    I worked at BlaBlaCar

    Pros

    - feeling part of a team, great energy, interest in reaching common goals - freedom to work remotely and meet with the manager according to your availability and schedule - great office! - overall good benefits, working conditions, they really care about employees and if you have any issue you feel comfortable in bringing it up

    Cons

    - lack of communication and engagement with the HQ-based team (this is valid for homeworkers) - some confusion when being part of different teams, therefore different country managers - career advancement is somewhat unclear

    Pros

    BlaBlaCar is a company filled with people who care about their jobs and one another. Everyone works hard so there is no animosity between teams or individuals. You are afforded a great deal of autonomy and there is organizational accountability. The growth of both the team and product are exciting to be a part of. It is a culture of continuous learning and improvement, with plenty of opportunities for growth and to make meaningful contributions. Highly recommend BlaBlaCar!

    Cons

    It's hard to think of any cons about working for BlaBlaCar. As a quick aside, the interview process was long and a bit arduous but when you arrive you realize why! Everyone who works there contributes positively to the culture and is highly valued - a result that makes tough interview processes worthwhile!

    Pros

    Tele travaille Nice canteen Center location in Paris Beautiful building

    Cons

    -Company not stable, they often don’t renew CDD contracts. -poor salary for the role and the volume of work they expect you to do! Too low salary for Paris lifestyle. - Favouritisme - Looks good to start with, but don’t trust the appearance, they make you believe that “you are part of the lovely and amazing family” and then you are out from one day to another without a reasonable explanation. -Very demanding but in return no holiday ( hard to get them easily), no flexibility, no bonus, no pay rise no carrier prospective, not many RTT. I’m personally disappointed, i had invest much on them and it turns out to be a bad surprise!

    Pros

    Wonderful idea, people, the sense of community.

    With the company's patterns shifting to a corporation, the idea "everyone is disposable" is becoming more noticeable.
